that is the story of this country. the story that has brought me to the stage tonight. the story of generations of people who felt the lash of bondage, the shame of servitude, the sting of segregation, but who kept on striving and hoping and doing what needed to be done so that today, i wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves. and -- and i watch my daughters, two, beautiful, intelligent, black young women playing with
their dog on the white house lawn. >> the first lady of the united states gives a powerful speech, as she makes a case for why a former first lady should be the next president. meanwhile, bernie sanders tries to bring the party together after a day of disunity and disruption. as "the new york times" notes this morning the leader of the revolt must now put one down. plus, donald trump and mike pence hold their first joint rally bringing with them big crowds and big attacks on the democrats. it's 5:00 a.m. on the east coast, 2:00 a.m. out west, this is "way too early." good morning, it is tuesday, july 26th, i'm chris jansing live for you in philadelphia. it was a raucous first day of the democratic convention where
the message of party unity was overcome by divisions from the primary. reopened by a leaked party e-mail showing favoritism, leading to rebellion around the city. the disruptions began over breakfast, they spilled into the streets and flooded the convention hall that night. it started just after 9:00 a.m. when ousted dnc chairwoman debbie wasserman schultz attempted to speak to her delegations breakfast and was shouted down by bernie sanders supporters. >> it is so wonderful to be able to be here with my home state. all right, everybody, now, settle down. everybody settle down, please. we must, under president hillary clinton, make sure -- we must under president hillary clinton make sure that our economy works for everyone. >> wasserman schultz's insistence on gaveling in the convention was scuttled while senator sanders attempted to
quell his supporters at an early afternoon meeting. >> despite the fact that our people were a minority on the platform writing committee we came out of that committee with, by far, the most progressive platform ever written in the history of the democratic party. immediately, right now, we have got to defeat donald trump. and we have got to elect hillary clinton and tim kaine. [ crowd booing ] brothers and sisters, this is -- this is the real world that we
live in. this campaign has been a fantastic beginning, a beginning, and from today, onward, we continue the fight. thank you all very much. >> they don't know -- >> that was the candidate's wife, jane sanders, caught on a hot mic expressing her concern of chaos in the convention hall. a spokesman later clarified that she means there will be a roll call vote and the senators aname will be placed in nomination. the democratic national committee now under the leadership of donna brazile issued a formal apology to sanders and his supporters but it was not enough to staunch the anger of die-hard bernie or bust contingents who booed mentions of hillary clinton, deepening the tension inside the hall.
>> god, you have given us wisdom. now, give us courage. for the facing of this hour. >> hillary clinton and tim kaine want to build an economy that works for everyone. not just the people at the top. >> i am reminded today of all the important fights of the past 50 years. >> i have the privilege to represent teachers, and first responders, veterans, and college students. >> she was in massachusetts going door-to-door collecting the stories of children with disabilities. >> hillary! >> unity. unity. >> hillary.
hillary! >> the bernie -- can i just say, to the bernie or bust people, you're being ridiculous. >> during his prime-time address last night bernie sanders acknowledged his disappointment at the outcome of the primary. he hit on many of the topics that were at the heart of his stump speech over the past year except for the part where he said hillary clinton must be the next president. >> this election is about which candidate understands the real problems facing this country, and has offered real solutions. not just bombast, not just fear mongering. not just name calling, and divisiveness. we need leadership in this country, which will improve the
lives of working families, the children, the elderly, the sick, and the poor. we need leadership which brings our people together and makes us stronger. by these measures any objective observer will conclude that based on her ideas and her leadership, hillary clinton must become the next president of the united states. >> a new pew research survey found 90% of those who consistently supported sanders during the primary now back clinton in the general election over trump. still, it was an emotional night for bernie sanders supporters. some were brought to tears during his remarks. bernie signs were even passed out reprinted in the team hillary font in a show of solidarity. here's what republican vice
presidential candidate mike pence said last night about disaffected sanders supporters. >> but to really find themselves shut out, to look at a ticket that doesn't give voice to what obviously millions of americans who align themselves with bernie sanders' message in their party and in their ticket i think is frustrating to them. and i understand that. look, but again that's their party. and they can cry if they want to, as the songwriter said. >> donald trump joined in, as well, tweeting, quote, bernie sanders totally sold out to crooked hillary clinton. all of that work, energy, and money, and nothing to show for it. waste of time. to which sanders' account responded, never tweet. if there was a calming voice for the party amid this fracture it was first lady michelle obama. while some idly speculated on twitter whether she would return the favor by duplicating some of melania trump's speech, the first lady, instead, told the story of her two daughters, growing up in the white house.
>> i will never forget that winter morning as i watched our girls, just 7 and 10 years old, pile into those black suvs, with all those big men with guns. and i saw their little faces pressed up against the window. at that moment i realized that our time in the white house would form the foundation for who they would become. and how well we managed this experience could truly make or break them. how we urged them to ignore those who question their father's citizenship or faith. how we insist that the hateful language they hear from public figures on tv does not represent the true spirit of this country. how we explain that when someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you don't stoop to their level.
no, our motto is, when they go low, we go high. and because of hillary clinton, my daughters, and all our sons and daughters, now take for granted that a woman can be president of the united states. so, don't let anyone ever tell you that this country isn't great. that somehow, we need to make it great again. because this right now is the greatest country on earth. >> incredibly powerful. meantime tonight's keynote speaker, senator elizabeth warren faced down chants of the audience of, we trusted you, and goldman sachs. warren didn't acknowledge the taunts and went on to attack
donald trump. >> trump thinks he can win votes by fanning the flames of fear and hatred. by turning neighbor against neighbor. but persuading you that the real problem in america is your fellow americans. people who don't look like you, or don't talk like you, or don't worship like you. he even picked a vice president famous for trying to make it legal to openly discriminate against gays and lesbians. that's donald trump's america. >> following the senator's speech donald trump tweeted, elizabeth warren often referred to as pocahontas, just misrepresented me and spoke glowingly about crooked hillary, who she always hated. truck also attacked warren during a campaign rally in north carolina last night. >> she hasn't done anything, this elizabeth warren, she's a disaster. she's the least productive senator in the united states senate, other than she has a big mouth. that's all.
she's got a big mouth. pocahontas. her life is a fraud in a sense. because she got into schools, and she got in everything, by saying she was a minority. and then they said oh, prove it. this is after she's already out. prove it. she goes, well look at my cheekbones. oh, look. you find anything nice about her cheekbones? i don't know. >> as the democrats were trying to tamp down a revolt in philadelphia, donald trump and his running mate mike pence were headed out to virginia and north carolina for their first joint rally in which the republican nominee delighted in the chaos, roiling the democratic party. >> i watched debbie wasserman schultz, debbie wasserman schultz -- and i've watched her for years, and what she was is hillary clinton's flung can i. okay, that's what she was?
you can say what you want. it was obvious, and the system's rigged and she was rigging the system for hillary, as soon as there's heat put on hillary's person, hillary says, you're fired. debbie, you're fired. debbie, you're fired, debbie. you were loyal to me for years and you're fired. that's what she said. boy did she give up fast, hillary. that's a real strong person, right? you think isis is worried, folks? i don't think so. >> still ahead, we'll have more highlights from the democratic national convention here in philadelphia. we're also following new developments on that mass shooting at a nightclub in florida. officials say terrorism was not involved. we'll have the latest on that. plus a landmark landing, as a solar powered aircraft, the solar impulse, completes its epic voyage around the world. those stories and a check on the weather when "way too early" comes right back live from philadelphia.

issued a statement saying a soldier responding to the militant group's call to target the west was responsible for the attack. this according to flashpoint intelligence. the statement did not indicate that isis had any role in directing or organizing the attack. it happened just two days after a shooting rampage that left nine dead at a munich mall. police do not believe the mall attack is linked to terror. and it's a journey for the record books. a solar powered aircraft landed in abu dhabi this morning after an epic 25,000 mile trip around the world. the solar impulse 2 spent 16 months circumnavigating the globe, powered solely by the sun. that makes it the first round the world fuel-free flight. two pilots took turns piloting the aircraft, which can only hold one person at a time. the plane has a wing span larger than a boeing 747, weighs as much as a car, but can only fly around 47 miles per hour. let's get a check on your weather now with nbc
meteorologist steve sosna. good morning and wow, it's going to be another hot one, isn't it >> yeah you're dressed for it, chris. it's going to be a hot day across much of the east. not quite as hot as yesterday. but still, all the difference. you're going to feel it here today in the major cities of the northeast. in fact, we've shrunk the heat advisories from 13 states down to six states here for today. and it still does include the new york city area. where heat advisories are in place for a feeling of the air around 100 degrees here this afternoon. so take it easy. take the breaks that you took yesterday. but we won't be dealing with any of the strong thunderstorms that we were dealing with yesterday. certainly the good news there. now temperatures across the country here for today, the eastern part of the country, still really hot. in fact the carolinas probably the hottest of the eastern united states here for today, where it feels like 106 later today in raleigh. 104 in columbia, and 98 in tallahassee. here there will be some thunderstorms south of virginia. so keep an eye to the sky. over all, again, for the next couple days we just have to sweat it out. looks like by the weekend,
